Nonlinear Dnamical Control of Laser Arrays

The subject of Chaos has been investigated since the turn of the century, it wasn't until the recent advances in Chaos that the importance and scope of the field was realized. It was believed that random Chaotic variations were too complicated to describe mathematically and statistical descriptions were the only means of understanding these dynamic systems. Now it is known that these chaotic systems are not just random fluctuations but are tottally deterministic. More importantly they can be controlled by studying the nature of the Chaos and applying small perturbations to the systems parameters. SEO with the help of Dr. Bandy's group at Oklahoma State University, propose to use the recent techniques of stabilizing nonlinear dynamic systems on a diode pumped external cavity resonator. Experimental and computer modeling of laser the external resonant cavity will be conducted witht different stabilizing parameters studied.
